People don't want to bother to read anything more than a few sentences. They refuse to take the time for more than a very brief scan of any news story.

That's why there are so many consipracy theiorists nowdays. they haven't bothered to read anything in depth, so they are wide open to the folks that ell them "I know the REAL story".

Too bad, I love to read newspapers. But sadly, so many of them have become ultar-ultra left wing, and they have little if any credibility left. It was fine when they confined their opinions to the editorial pages, but no many newspapers put opinions into their news stories.

The they wonder why they can't sell their rags.

Don't worry about cable TV, etc. It generally specializes in the quickie stories that people prefer.

You really are crazy, aren't you?

Everyone I know (and I know hundreds of people) reads a lot.

Your problem is that you inhabit your insular world of conspiracies and blame. You have no real life, you blame all of YOUR bad decisions on others. It's all the fault of ______ (fill in the blanks), because I can't do what I want to do.

Go live in a forest somewhere. Refuse to use anything from another country. Make your own hinges, your own foods, your own medicines, etc. Nothing stops you from doing that..

Yet you want to use the fruits of the modern world (like your computer), but you reject the world that brings those things to you.

You are nothing but sick in your head.
